3 “A student’s academic evaluation should reflect the teacher’s best assessment of the student’s academic achievement of required work.” -Board Policy Manual, IDA

4  Create a grading scale in which a failing grade does not disproportionately impact the overall grade

6  O’Connor, Ken. How to Grade For Learning: Linking Grades to Standards,  Reeves, Doug. “The Case Against the Zero.” Phi Delta Kappan; Dec 2004,  Other researchers: Rick Wormelli, Rick Stiggins, Robert Marzano, Tom Guskey, Doug Reeves, and Jay McTighe.

7  “…the common use of the zero today is based… on a 100-point scale. This defies logic and mathematical accuracy. On a 100-point scale, the interval between numerical and letter grades is typically 10 points, with the break point at 90, 80, 70, and so on. But when the grade of 0 is applied to a 100-point scale, the interval between the D and [E] is not 10 points but [59] points.” – Douglas Reeves

8  “…we should teach and grade in such a way that engenders hope… [and] accuracy. [Eliminating the 6 levels of failure] will mitigate an extraordinary negative impact.” – Rick Wormeli  “The inclusion of [a] 0 in the grade [can lead] to a serious miscommunication of… achievement.” – Ken O’Connor
